Packaging

I care about the world we live in and looking after our natural environment and I personally gift-wrap all of my orders. 

Gift Box

I’m really proud of my new packaging, and spent a long time thinking and researching ideas. Is it perfect? No, probably not, but at the moment it fits my purpose: to have a box that you can keep your beautiful new jewellery protected and tarnish-free in, and still be able to see the contents!

           

All jewellery will now come in these boxes (unless the Premium Gift Wrap is purchased). The box is made from a black cardboard base and a food-grade PVC lid, all of which is fully recyclable – should you wish to do so. 

The plastic covers enable you to see what is inside, rather than the regular jewellery boxes you get, and also keep the jewellery in an airless/ moisture-less environment. Your jewellery will be less likely to tarnish and also be protected from scratches and tangles with other jewellery. It is recommended that you keep your jewellery and box out of direct sunlight – in a cool, dark draw is best.

What’s inside the box:

  • An anti-tarnish tab (small square of paper that absorbs moisture)
  • Re-purposed bubble wrap (that I have already, no new bubble wrap will be bought) instead of a foam pad insert.
  • Jewellery Care Instructions Card – some simple tips on how to look after your new jewellery. For more information visit Jewellery Care.

 

Premium Gift Wrap

The Curlicue NZ Premium Gift Wrap service can be purchased separately, and includes your gift being wrapped in tissue and wrapping paper, and placed inside a small kete (flax) bag, along with a beautiful handmade gift card – inside of which I will personally hand-write your message.

          

The whole item is then wrapped in (recycled) bubble wrap to ensure it’s safe passage whether couriered within NZ or posted overseas.

There are currently eight (8) different picture options for the Handmade Gift Cards (blank on the inside). You may add a personalised message free of charge, simply add your message to the comments box at checkout and I will personally hand write your message into your card and will happily send it directly to the recipient on your behalf. 

No invoices or receipts are ever included with purchases, to save paper and make gift-giving hassle free!
